It's 15th of March, 2019

Taidemaalariliiton klassinen Teosvälitys Helsingin Kaapelitehtaalla! Kipinkapin sinne! Työni menivät jo, mutta kiinnostuneille, minulla on myös muutamia töitä Helsingin Taiteilijaseuran Rikhardinkadun taidelainaamossa, josta voi myös ostaa heti.  https://www.painters.fi/teosvalitys/         

So, If in Finland, the Art Fair of The Finnish Painting Union is starting tomorrow 9.3.–17.3.2019 https://www.painters.fi/teosvalitys/
I sold my works already, but have some more in this place 
Helsingin Taidelainaamo/Helsinki Art Library  -if you are in Helsinki, Finland.


We've been VERY busy doing Pre-Production on my husband's vampire short film, 'The Hunted Allgovia', a German spin-off fot the webseries
 'The Hunted' --
(https://www.youtube.com/user/thehuntedtv) !

It is crazy how much co-ordibation needs to be done! Plus I'm working not only as co-producer, but also on costumes, and props. FUN!

Our Pre-Launch page is LIVE! You can sign up for our Campaign Launch and updates at Indiegogo:

I will put more paintings up on Artmajeur.com, but first concentrate on finishing my latest comic. 70% done. But I didn't realise how busy I would be , so the publishing is rescheduled for beginning of May. It will come out in English and German, at least. And yes it is closely linked to my husband short film project.

If you click on the picture it will guide you to Taidemaalariliitto Teosvälitys 2019
or Helsingin Taiteilijaseura Taidelainaamo.
 The fotos of the paintings will be put up soon on the latter.
I also renewed my pages at Kuvataiteilijamatrikkeli (link above).

 I am also writing a book, but, about that later.

Briar's revies has reviwed lately my Elf graphic novels! Here's the link to her blog:


Let's not forget either my fresh interview on the inspiring book
        blog 'Eclectic Moods' (ministryofmagik.blogspot.com) will be up as well!

 Her visual inspiration comes from fine arts as well as from the wide

With her husband they share a taste for humor, love for cats,
and they get inspired by our tragicomic planet and its curious creatures.

She has dabbled in arts, illustration, teaching, upholstery, painting chairs,
 walls, pictures, and whatnot, and is thus a self-declared multi-dilettantte.
